New AIDSinfo HIV/AIDS Treatment Guidelines App Released

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) today announced the release of a new AIDSinfo Treatment Guidelines app for both iOS and Android devices. The AIDSinfo Treatment Guidelines app provides mobile access to the HIV/AIDS medical practice guidelines developed by working groups of the NIH Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council. The guidelines include recommendations by expert panels on the treatment of HIV infection and related opportunistic infections in adults, adolescents, and children and on the management of perinatal HIV infection.

Health care providers surveyed on the AIDSinfo website expect mobile access to up-to-date HIV information at the point of care—even when an Internet connection is unavailable. Designed to meet that expectation, the app automatically refreshes guidelines content when the user is connected to a wireless or cellular data network. When wireless Internet access is not available, app users can view and search the guidelines offline, and the app will check for and download any updates when the user is back online and connected again.

Available for both iOS and Android devices, the free AIDSinfo Guidelines app includes several features to personalize the app to meet individual needs. Using these features, app users can:

  • View only guideline recommendations or tables
  • Receive alert notifications when a new guideline is released or guideline content is updated
  • Bookmark sections of a guideline
  • Add notes to sections of a guideline
  • Share guidelines and notes via social media, email, or text
  • Search for information within guidelines
  • Use the guideline spell suggest feature for searching when connected to wireless or using cellular data

The free Guidelines app may also be downloaded from the AIDSinfo website. We encourage feedback on this app and other features of AIDSinfo. Please email your comments and suggestions to ContactUs@aidsinfo.nih.gov.
